meeting your MXit contacts
April 10, 2007
Every once in a while you will hear that you shouldn’t give personal information out over MXit (or any IM for that matter), still everyone does it. You meet someone, you chat for a while, and then you are willing to tell that person where you live, or (s)he tells you where they live etc.
Then you get to the point where you want to meet this person. Again, you are told not to do this, and still, it is begin done. Let me say this first. There has been problems
If you then go to meet someone. Here is some pointers.
- NEVER go alone, take along a friend, if you’re a girl, maybe take along one of your guy friends.
- Meet in ‘n public place. NEVER go to their home, or any other place, not matter who are with you, how long you have known this person. NEVER.
- Make sure someone knows where you are going, and for how long. Tell you’re parents where and how long you will be. And never move this appointment on the last minute.
- Never accept a lift home after an appointment from this person. Never be picked up for an appointment. No matter how nice this person sounds.
Add some of your ideas if you’d like. But please make sure you’re friends are aware of these regulations. It’s a safety issue, don’t take chances. Take this from a fellow MXit’eer:-)
